DH would tell me stories from his supermarket days about a woman who came in everyday to use the bathroom and then would poop on the floor.

My mom used to work retail in the Kittery, ME outlet malls. She said in the summer they would have to clean human excrement out of the dressing room on a weekly basis, without fail. Seriously??

I was in line at the grocery store behind a woman who didn't have enough money to pay for all her groceries. She had the cashier playing mix-n-match, having her take these three items off the order, OK put this one back but take that off, etc. It went on for quite awhile, much to the frustrations of those of us in line. I could see if she needed to eliminate an item or two- because whose math is perfect- but she left about 10 items behind. She clearly had way more groceries than she had money for (and she looked reasonably well-to-do, not like she was living day-to-day or anything).

Uncooked meat juice. Maybe you should taste it again and see.
Oh, that one almost made coffee come out of my nose! Too funny.

I was a cashier at a casino for a short period back when slot machines used coins.

I once had a bucket full of slimy stuff and quarters. This happens occasionally - people spill drinks in them - so I got the quarters out, got them counted then went back to give the man his paper cash. As I did so, he slurred out "oh yeah, I forgot, I vomited in that bucket."

I often had women hand me wet, sweaty money from under their clothes. Didn't really bother me. Just sweat.

The only thing that ever really bothered me was vomit.

At a store I worked at years ago, we had someone who would do this and then write on the walls. Never could catch the person. Always assumed it was a man as it was in the mens room but could have been anyone.

Just a random thing and boy was it the grossest thing EVER.

THIS!! And then the customer says "How did it come to xxx amount?? I didn't buy that much!" And then they ask you to show them the items on the computer screen one by one, and show them where the tax is added in etc. etc. Eventually they realize that yes indeed they did spend that much....and finally decide to pay you. All the while muttering and shaking their head.

I used to work as a bank teller. I have had people pull money out of their bras, their shoes, socks, you name it. I must have had a good immune system because I almost never got sick.

But the worst was the woman I observed at Wal-Mart. She licked each bill before handing it to the poor cashier who looked revolted. The woman's excuse...she had macular degeneration and couldn't see. So you can tell the denomination by taste?

Oh, some of these are BAD!

Down here in south Florida, the vast majority of grocery store customers (and residents) are retirees or snowbirds from the Northeast (think NY/NJ, etc). And they all talk SO LOUDLY in the most heinous New Jersey accents you've ever heard (no offense, NJ people!). And I guess they must mostly be deaf, because in the store they are all YELLING AT EACH OTHER AT TOP VOLUME in these accents. Generally husbands and wives. ("BIIIILLL?! YOU FAHGAAAHT THE BUTTAH! I TOLD YOU NOT TO FAHHGIT THE BUTTAH!") And you can hear it all. over. the. store.

One time when I was going into the store, there was an older lady who had just checked out, and apparently had realized that she had lost her cane somewhere in the store. So, did she go back into the aisles to get it? (Btw, she had a younger companion with her). No, she's at customer service screaming that "SOMEONE HERE STOLE MY CANE! ONE OF YOUR EMPLOYEES STOLE MY CANE!" And it went on and on. Sigh...

I should add a disclaimer - I am not saying these stories to make fun of older people. All of these people seemed to be very able bodied and on the younger side of elderly (i.e., mid to late 60s) - I wouldn't make fun of an older person who was clearly having difficulties.

And the worst. All of them insist on writing a check when they check out!!!

Too much! The public, ya gotta love them, and stand far enough away so they can't touch ya.

PSA, PLEASE if you are putting your infant carseat on top of the seating area, either pull up the handle so the the seat locks onto it, or make sure you remove the seat before rattling to the parking lot. That seat is NOT secure and can fall off onto the road on your way to the car. Yes, it's happened.

I remember working at our small town Wal-Mart when I was just out of high school and still living with my mother. I would ALWAYS get the parent that comes in, stands as close as possible to whisper and ask "Where is the stuff for lice?"

I would show them then scratch my head the rest of the day and when I would get home beg my mom to "Check my head, check my head!"

We also had the poop on the walls. Mostly in the bathroom at the snack bar.

Actually that's one of the worst things about Wal-Mart stores...the bathrooms are universally disgusting!

I've got that one beat & I was brand new too!!! Talk about "EWWWW" factor. It was the local homeless guy (trust me...he told you and everyone he was homeless, needed a shower to get rid of an ear infection and his brother was the lead singer of Chicago but quit right before they got big!)...anyway....he literally took his boot off (had to go sit down to do it) to get his money out of his shoe. GROSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank goodness we do have hand sanitizer around....I think I just had the look of shock & horror when he did that. He had been in before but this was the first time we had the boot issue. You know...as much as people don't like self check-out -- I was beyond thrilled the last time he was in and used it. I did not have to touch the money.

Nice come back!

I just went grocery shopping yesterday (my usual day for food shopping). The store was a bit crowded for a Wednesday late morning. But more snow was forcasted and everyone had to do their shopping (btw, we only got a dusting this morning). I'm patiently waiting on line at the register and I look at the woman's cart in front of me. Nothing out of the ordinary except for that one package of Valentine's marshmallow candy (similar to Peeps) that she practically had eaten before paying for it. I can't stand when people take things off the shelf, open it and start eating it prior to paying. No matter how you look at it, it's stealing. It doesn't matter that you are "going" to pay for it before you leave. Stealing, is stealing. I guess her stomach couldn't wait until after she was done paying for everything.

My whole issue with the above is that a lot of people pay using their debit card and don't have cash or a checkbook on hand. So their screwed if their card is declined (or the card machines are down) and they have no other way to pay for it.
